This challenge is basically a combination of the Music Challenge and the Gallery Inspiration Challenge!

The purpose of the challenge is to create a layout using something from a song, whether it is all or part of a title, lyrics or artist name. The fun part is you do not get to chose your own song - the person who signs up after you does!

So this is how it goes:
Sign up for the challenge
The person who signs up after you will pick a song for you to use. When picking a song please list the song name and the artist/group it is by so people can look up the lyrics. The exception would be if you chose a song like “Happy Birthday” or something where there is not necessarily a certain artist and everyone knows the words!
You then select a song for the person who has signed up before you. In order to play you must chose a song within 24 hours of signing up please!
The first person to sign up will pick a song for me. I will pick a song for the last person!
Create a layout (layouts only please but can be any size!) using something from your song as inspiration! Can be as little as one key word or the whole song!

Please include public embedding and leave love as much as you can!

Dates:
Signups will continue through until JANUARY 5th - ***JANUARY IS ALL ABOUT NEW STARTS SO FOR THIS MONTH ONLY YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COMPLETE YOUR DECEMBER LAYOUT BEFORE SIGNING UP EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO JOIN REGARDLESS!!!!***

**If you complete your layout before signups are closed you are able to sign up for a second song if you wish!

Twist #1: Choose EITHER a song that is very OLD to you or NEW to you
Twist #2: Out with the old and in with the new! The twist is to use an item that is one of the newest things in your stash AS WELL AS using an item that has been in your stash forever!

Random.org will chose a winner from the previous month on the 5th - that person can pick a Bonus song that anyone is free to complete throughout the month!


LINKING LAYOUTS TO THE THREAD:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Go to the Share section on the right-hand side and click on ‘Link/Embed Image'.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

ALLOWING PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

I'm in. The song I picked for you Amanda fits both old and new. It's a song from 1975 but I just heard it for the first time in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody:

Queen - Love of My Life

I have to add that I am a little upset with myself for now knowing this song but I'm glad I do now.

I'd love to play! I learned about this song recently via my girlfriend's FB post. I pulled it up on YouTube and played it for my husband. We both love it!

Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton

I used to spend my nights out in a barroom
Liquor was the only love I've known
But you rescued me from reachin' for the bottom
And brought me back from being too far gone
You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You're as sweet as strawberry wine
You're as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time
I've looked for love in all the same old places
Found the bottom of a bottle always dry
But when you poured out your heart I didn't waste it
'Cause there's nothing like your love to get me high
You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You're as sweet as strawberry wine
You're as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time
You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You're as sweet as strawberry wine
You're as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time
You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
Tennessee whiskey
Tennessee whiskey
You're as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
Tennessee whiskey
Tennessee whiskey

I wanna play please

"Two Lovers" By Mary Wells

Well, I've got two lovers,
And I ain't ashamed.
Two lovers, and I love them both the same.

Let me tell you bout, my first lover.
He's sweet and kind, and he's mine, oh, mine, and
Treats me good like a lover should.
And makes me love him.
I really really love him oh, oh, I love him so.
And I'll do everything I can to let him know.

But, I've got two lovers, and I ain't ashamed.
Two lovers, and I love them both the same.
Let me tell you bout my other lover.

Well, you know he treats me bad.
Makes me sad.
Makes me cry, but still I can't deny, but
I love him, I really really love him. oh, oh, I
Love him so. And I'll do everything I can to let him know.

Darlin' well, don't you know I can tell.
That whenever I look at you, that you think
That I'm untrue, 'cause I say that I love two.
But, I really, really do.
Cause, you're a split personality.
And in reality, both of them are you.
(They both are you)

Well, I've got two lovers...

Got you added Monique! I actually found some perfect photos from 2013 (ds' first valentine's day) that worked with my song so I just finished it! But definitely too dark to get a photo now. Will likely be a couple days before I post it as after work tomorrow we are heading to see dh's family and have our Christmas with them.

I’m in!

My song choice is:

LIFE CHANGES - Thomas Rhett

Waking up in my college dorm
Yeah, my life, it was pretty normal
Looking for a date to the spring formal
Wasn't worried 'bout nothing else, no
Majoring in undecided
Notebook full of bad songs I was writing
Never dreamed anyone else would like'em
Now they're sitting on a Walmart shelf
Ain't it funny how life changes
You wake up, ain't nothing the same and life changes
You can't stop it, just hop on the train and
You never know what's gonna happen
You make your plans and you hear god laughing
Life changes, and I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
I bought a ring and she said "I do"
But everybody else said, "man, you're twenty-two
"Whatcha trying to prove?"
"Hey why don't you wait?"
'Cause I've been waiting on her since the second grade yeah
And now she got her own set of fans
She got a blue check mark by her Instagram
And I wrote a little song about holding her hand and now everybody wanna die happy now
Ain't it funny how life changes
You wake up ain't nothing the same and life changes
You can't stop it just hop on the train
You never know what's gonna happen
You make your plans and you god laughing
Life changes (yes it does) and I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
I remember the day I told my Daddy and Mama you're gonna have a grandkid, yep
From Uganda, that's right, we're adopting
And she is the cutest little girl that you've ever seen
Well I was wrapping my head around being a dad
A bigger wrench got thrown in the plans we thought we'd had
Now Lauren's showin', got one on the way
Yeah that's two under two, hey, what can I say?
Ain't it funny how life changes
You wake up ain't nothing the same and life changes
You can't stop it just hop on the train and
You never know what's gonna happen
You make your plans and you god laughing
Life changes (yes it does) and I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn't change it for the world, the world, oh no
The world, the world
The world, the world

If it's okay, I would like to jump in again. I really need to get back into my favorite hobby. Work has slowed down and will so for a bit. If it's ok though I'll have to think about my song and come back later to post it.

Well, it didn't take me long. One of my favorite "old" songs is "My Girl" by the Temptations. I'm on my phone so can't add words right now, but whoever gets this song and needs the words, I will add them.

This is my layout for "Two Lovers" by Mary Wells. I took inspiration from the lyrics "I still can't deny" and used them in my journaling "...there is no denying that progress was made."

Monique, glad you finally made it to the movies! Now go more often. In the past week my husband and I saw Bumblebee, Aquaman and Mary Poppins Returns. We saw 21 movies this year. That's actually kind of low for us. We have 25+ movies on the list for 2019 already!

Used the lyrics....I could start to give apologies for all the stupid things that I will say and I will do....I saw these pictures and thought those lyrics were perfect, it is my oldest son just a few months old.

Went for something new....

"What Makes You Country" Luke Bryan

People talkin' 'bout what is and what ain't country
What gives 'em a right to wear a pair of beat-up boots?
Is it the size of your tires and your fires, or your wild ******** buddies?
Well, give me a minute, let me hit you with some hometown truth

You could be a cowboy on the Texas plain
Or a plowboy waitin' on the rain
We're all a little different, but we're all the same
Everybody doin' their own thing

I got my dirt road cred when I was 12
On a no cab tractor hauling 'em bales
Backing in boats, fishing limb lines
Running bird dogs through the Georgia pines
Step side covered down in peanut dust
Friday night spotlight, that was us
It might not've been you, but I can't judge
Just be proud of what makes you country

Does it run in your blood?
Did it come from your daddy and mama?
Where you converted by an Alabama song on the radio?
That feels so right
Did you lock eyes with a little green eyed girl from Jackson?
Tell me what got ya, I just gotta know

Me, I got my Sunday learning in a live-oak church
Silver Queen corn in the backyard dirt
Waiting for the fall to finally come along
So I can grab by gun and get my outside on
Step side cover down in peanut dust
Friday night spotlight, that was us
It might not've been you, but I can't judge
Just be proud of what makes you country

Might be from a city or a little farm town
Whatever kind of square that you drove around
Do you wear it on your sleeve or keep it deep down?
You know you gotta let it out

I got my dirt road cred back when I was 12
On a no cab tractor haulin' 'em bales
Backing in boats, fishing limb lines
Running bird dogs through them Georgia pines
Step side covered down in peanut dust
Friday night spotlight, that was us
It might not've been you, but I ain't judging
And just be proud of what makes you country
Whatever makes you country

You do your kinda country
They doing they kind of country
I do my kind of country
Whatever makes us country

I'll try this month! My song is American Pie by Don McLean. LOL, I know this isn’t very old but it was on the radio and I figured...good lyrics and old enough.

American Pie
Don McLean

A long long time ago
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile
And i knew that if i had one chance
I could make those people dance
And maybe they'd be happy for awhile

Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the bible tells you so
Now do you believe in rock n roll
And can music save your mortal soul
And can it teach me how to dance real slow
Well i know that your in love with him
Cause i saw you dancing in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
And i did Gods rhythm and blues
I was a lonely teenage brock of luck
With a great carnation and a pick up truck
But i knew that i was out of luck
The day the music died
I started singing

[Chorus]
Bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levy
But the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
singing
This will be the day that I die
This will be the day that I die

I met a girl who sang the blues
And i asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
Well i went down to the sachet store
Where i heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play
Well now in the streets the children screamed
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all broken
And the three men i admire the most,
The father, son, and the holy ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died
I started singing

Bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levy
But the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
singing
This will be the day that I die
This will be the day that I die

Bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levy
But the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
singing
This will be the day that I die
This will be the day that I die

we started singing
we started singing
we started singing
we started singing

I'm in for January. I selected this song by Ciara (new to me)

I Got You
Ciara
Hush little baby don't you cry
Momma's gonna love you all your life
And if you ever need a friend
Momma's right there till the very end
And if you're feeling down or weak
Momma's gonna give you all the strength you need
There's nothing in this world that I wouldn't do
For my little Future 'cause I love you
It all can get so out of control sometimes
You can lose your faith, you can lose your mind
Lose your grip, get stripped of your pride
Till you don't know how you're gonna stay alive
And this world can throw you over the track sometimes
Your friends can stab you in the back
Sometimes you just break down
When this life tries to wreck you, I protect you yeah
I got your back, I got you
I take your side, I lay my life down for you
I'll crawl over broken glass, I will stand in the flame
Take the bullet, take the blows, I would take all the pain
Anything, anything that you gotta get through
Hey, hey, I got you
Hey, hey, I got you
It all can push you over the edge sometimes
Make you wanna jump off the ledge sometimes
Make you wanna stand up and scream
Make you feel like there is no one listening
This world can put a hole in your soul sometimes
Put you at the end of your road
Sometimes you just break down
When this world tries to end you, I defend you yeah
I got your back, I got you
I take your side, I lay my life down for you
I'll crawl over broken glass, I will stand in the flame
Take the bullet, take the blows, I would take all the pain
Anything, anything that you gotta get through
Hey, hey, I got you
Hey, hey, I got you
Hey, hey, I got you
I'll be there to stop the bleeding
I'll be there to start the healing
I will give you what you're needing
I'll be right there
I got your back, I got you
I take your side, I lay my life down for you yeah
I'll crawl over broken glass, I will stand in the flame
Take the bullet, take the blows, I would take all the pain
Anything, anything that you gotta get through
Hey, hey, I got you
Hey, hey, I got you
I got your back, I got you
I take your side, I lay my life down for you
I'll crawl over broken glass, I will stand in the flame
Take the bullet, take the blows, I would take all the pain
Anything, anything that you gotta get through
Hey, hey, I got you
Hey, hey, I got you
Hey, hey, I got you
Hey, hey, I got you
Hey, hey, I got you

I'm in. I still plan on finishing my December layout but haven't found the right photos to do it with.

My song is People are Different by Florida Georgia Line. It is new to me as it was just released on December 23.

I would like to jump in for round #2.

My song would be "Remedy" by Adele:

I will have to come back with the lyrics... granddaughter
is here and is not letting me get anything done...sigh.

"Remedy"

I remember all of the things that I thought I wanted to be
So desperate to find a way out of my world and finally breathe
Right before my eyes I saw, my heart it came to life
This ain't easy, it's not meant to be
Every story has its scars

When the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be your remedy
When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be your remedy

No river is too wide or too deep for me to swim to you
Come whatever, I'll be the shelter that won't let the rain come through
Your love, it is my truth
And I will always love you
Love you

When the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be your remedy
When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be your remedy

When the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
I will be, I will be
When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be, I will be...
Your Remedy

Love of my life By Scrapanda

I am going to go for a round 2 (so hopefully someone signs up after me so I'm not picking my own song after when sign ups close!).

My song for Coleen is Head Above Water by Avril Lavigne (new to me)

I'm in. I still plan on finishing my December layout but haven't found the right photos to do it with.

My song is People are Different by Florida Georgia Line. It is new to me as it was just released on December 23.

FUN! I know just the photos I'm going to use for this, just sent them to be printed,

I'm back to scrapbooking challenges after taking a break and this is one of my favorites.
I'm choosing:

The Great Pretender

Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Pretending I'm doing well (ooh ooh)
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell
Oh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Adrift in a world of my own (ooh ooh)
I play the game but to my real shame
You've left me to dream all alone
Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal
Ooh ooh yes I'm the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what I'm not (you see)
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

Let's see what I'll get to work with.
Happy New Year everybody!

Song choice for the bonus. Beyoncé Crazy In Love.

I heard this song at a wedding I attended this weekend. Everyone was up and dancing on the dance floor, including the band.

Hi all! We are heading to Hawaii in the morning for just over a week. I am sure I will have some down time to check in on occasion as we're taking the kids so once they're in bed I'll have a chance to but it'll be the iPad so I won't be able to update the from until we get back.

Amanda: hope you'll have a fabulous time along with your family.
Here's my entry.
Twist: the paper is new, the journaling card is old.
I used the verse "Just like an old fashion story" from my song.

I received the song "My Girl" as my inspiration. It reminds me of the movie with Vada and Thomas J. that I watched as a kid.

It also made me think of my DD - who is very much My Girl.

My Girl By Cinderella4282

It went to a very girly place - which fit the title perfectly!

I'm back! So I definitely lied and did not check in at all while away. With the exception of 2 nights dh and I fell asleep at the same time as the kids every night on our trip! There was a 4 hour time difference for us and when we shut the lights out for the kids to fall asleep we often fell asleep too!
But we did have an amazing time and I cannot wait to scrap the photos! I generally am behind on my scrapping and don't do anything recent but since this will be it's own album I am hoping to print the photos this week and get started!

ACU and updated the front as well.

Amanda, my mantra has always been to scrap what you want, when you want. I mean, think about it - if I, God forbid, die tomorrow, the last years of my life wouldn't be accounted for if I scrapped in order!

Glad you had a great time and didn't check in - just proves you had a fabulous time and enjoyed your vacation.

OK, done! My song was Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton. I used the word Tennessee in the subtitle. The whole idea for this lo came from the word "Tennessee!"

Awe thanks Artesha! In all the times I've entered this challenge, I've only been stumped once. When I first saw your song, I had a few ideas. My husband just started getting into different whiskeys so I could've gone that route as well especially since my daughter bought him 2 new ones for Christmas.
